Snow Cover: 7"-8" in the woods
Date of Report: December 29, 2016
The groomers were out last night & really had things smooth & firmed up this morning. We had a dusting to maybe 1″ of new snow today. 1-3″ forecast for Friday.
Trails that I could see along HWY 45 looked good this morning. As a matter if fact, the grade north of Log Cabin had not been ridden since being groomed last night as of 8:45 today.
Twin Haven via the new trail; Trail is nice except for the last 3/4 mile where it turns off the grade. This section must be ridden slowly. For those running along the power lines N from North Twin boat ramp, you now have a stop sign at the grade, E/W traffic has the right of way.
Pioneer Lake was marked yesterday, Buckatabon today & North Twin was marked yesterday. Expect rough lake travel with minimal snow cover, glare ice, slush & frozen ruts. If you travel the lakes, go slow. Trust me as I’ve seen 2 mishaps in 2 days on the Three Lakes chain.
News and Reports:
Don’t forget you need a WI trail permit to ride the state’s groomed trail system. Aggressive riding causes more trail damage than slower, less aggressive riding. Until the base gets built up & we get more snow to work with, groomers can only do so much to repair damage.
